The Great Canadian Midway, a popular attraction on Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls, will remain closed until Monday. It is within the block presently cordoned off by the Niagara Police after a deadly shooting early this morning.

While Niagara Police have still not given the exact location of the early morning shootings on Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls, news has gotten out that the Great Canadian Midway – a popular arcade attraction – will remain closed until Monday (April 11).

Earlier reports based on Facebook accounts from local residents indicated the shooting was at Boston Pizza, just a few doors down from Great Canadian Midway.

And while that location has not been confirmed by the Niagara Police, their forensic team are continuing their investigation of a 12:30 am shooting that left one victim dead and sent two to the hospital – one critically injured.

Due to the investigation, the entire block of Clifton Hill has been cordoned off by police, meaning the Great Canadian Midway might simply be shut down because it is inaccessible.

While police are not still releasing the age and gender of the victims, several Facebook posters with scanners indicated that they heard the victims were male and in their teens.

A blue Ford F-150 Super Crew four-door pickup truck was seen leaving the area at a high rate of speed is still believed to be the likely getaway vehicle. It has visible damage and is missing both a door handle and the front licence plate.
